Our mission is to guide the audience with our performance, to a place, where they feel a sense of wonder. To spark a flame of inspiration that will blossom and bring new magic into their everyday lives. We want people to send all their friends and families to see the show! We want people to await next years event long before the show is in town!
Mara & Chris have been touring together since 2014, in circuses and variety theatres all over Europe. We tickle the imagination of our audience with our creative, rare and surprising acts, always with passion, joy and professionalism.
At the age of 6, Chris Pettersen saw a slackwire walker in a circus show. From that moment on he knew that he wanted to become a professional circus artist!

 

The next day his father built a slackwire structure for Chris in the backyard and he started balancing and practising.From 2001 to 2008 he went to different circus schools in Norway, Sweden and Belgium including 3 years at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque in Brussels.

 

Since graduation, Chris Pettersen has performed with his slackwire act in places such as Circus Monti in Switzerland, in Cirque du Soleil in New York, in GOP Varieté in Germany, and the London Olympics Closing Ceremony.
Mara Zimmerli originally learned to ride horses and spent 2 years show riding in the Falconeria Locarno Switzerland. Her desire for adventure took her to the St. James Way. Where she hiked 2,500 km from Zurich to Santiago de Compostella with her white stallion as her only company.

 

After working two years as a security officer, she spent one season doing advertisement for Circus Monti. At the circus she finally found her calling. And she found Chris!

 

Since 2013 she has developed into a successful artist with a lot of discipline and various skills.
We deliver special disciplines, surprise effects and an audience so happy that they return next year!
